This album will give you a contact high just from listening to it.

From: Gar Date: January 28, 2004 at 15:06
My favorite Love/Hate cd. This is one of those albums where every song is so good, it's hard to pick a favorite. Definitely recommended.

I still like the first better, but this does have some awesome tunes on it. As far as tunes, I think I like "Times Up" the best, but there are some real close seconds...definitely a solid release, too bad they got completely inconsistent after this.

From: Bryan Date: April 1, 2004 at 17:10
This album is killer!!! Not as good as their debut but awesome just the same. "Happy Hour" is one of their best songs.

From: Guille Date: April 3, 2004 at 18:45
Wasted...is great,the best album of Love/Hate.Yucca Man is the song. That's my opinion.

From: tomcat Date: April 5, 2004 at 18:13
a classic album..the only song i didn't like was their song 'don't fuck with me'..;the message was good but the song for me was a filler among killers..i used to program this cd so i wouldn't hear that tune..anyway, SOME OF THE BEST rock n roll songs ever are on this cd.. check out 'miss america', 'happy hour','wasted in america' and 'social sidewinder'..love/hate is the sort of band that should have been huge but they weren't...but for me they are one of the best american rock n roll bands ever

From: Paulo_Fernandes Date: April 6, 2004 at 12:59
"dont fuck with me" - a filler ???? tomcat didn't take his daily pill - i love that song, used to play a lot on the radio around here, those were the days - great album, this one and the first which is a classic of the genre

From: TIM Date: April 6, 2004 at 13:06
They have radios over there? HaHa

From: Paulo_Fernandes Date: April 6, 2004 at 13:07
Well yes, and good taste too

From: ppfinder Date: April 19, 2004 at 8:14
And more, here in Portugal we don't have to take with censored shit versions. Love/Hate one of my top 10 bands.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 20:28
Not as strong as the first, but still an essential album for fans of sleazy rock. The titles track and "Happy Hour" are the best tunes here. 9/10

From: Rocker10 Date: October 28, 2004 at 2:38
Good follow up to Blackout. Not quite as strong, but in the neighborhood. 8/10

From: detective Date: January 5, 2005 at 20:33
The first seven songs on this one are probably the artistic pinnacle of sleaze metal, period. There's not one band in this genre that I can think of that even ATTEMPTS the kind of mind-scrambling stuff going on here. Wild, uncontainable creative mindfuck of the highest order. Criminally underrated to boot. Too bad Jizzy jumped ship to the lesser Ratt. We could use this kind of stuff NOW!

From: Geoff Date: January 16, 2005 at 4:56
As most people here agree, this was not quite as good as the debut but is in no way a disappointment. Another great CD and very close to the excellence of the debut. Good band back in the day.

From: Trick Taylor Date: November 13, 2006 at 14:52
For years I virtually ignored this release, not having gotten much out of it the first time around. Strange that I wouldn't give it more of a chance given that "Blackout" continues to be a Top 10 for me. I recently dusted off this tape and HOLY CRAP, what an amazing effort. Now I concur with most in that Wasted fails to match Blackout in pure energy and punch. But the maturity of wasted's songs is top notch, a true bridge between glam and grunge. "Don't Fuck With Me" sucks however.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 22, 2007 at 20:37
Excellent album!!!.just listened to it and blew my mind off!!!."Spit" is a great and catchy song.10/10

From: teslakid Date: May 30, 2007 at 18:46
Su mejor trabajo,fue el primer disco de ellos que compré, por eso cuando los escuche por primera vez quedé en shock!!!,no tiene un solo segundo de desperdicio.10/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 3, 2011 at 19:32
Being more objective about my comment way back in 2007 this album at first listening blew my mind,yes it did,but after a couple of spins more i realize that this album could be fantastic to some (like it did to me in 2007) but honestly it has its low moments... tracks rather than great ones is what we really have in here ("Wasted In America","Miss America","Time's Up" & "Evil Twin")... if we are talking favorites then the ones that i really enjoyed were "Spit" which is awesome,"Cream" & "Tramquilizer"....not actually 100/100 but rather a 88/100

From: rockhardrock Date: February 2, 2011 at 16:33
their debut was much better.this one is still sleazy in some placesbut the bad thing is that some songs are too close to alternative sounding rock. my faves: wasted in america, don't f... with me, evil twhin and social sidewinder.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: April 21, 2015 at 14:09
Looking back, it seems like if they hadn't been so closely associated with the Sunset Strip scene, Love/Hate might--MIGHT--have been one of those eccentric metal bands that end up being embraced as much, if not more, by non-metal fans. Kinda the way Faith No More, Queens of the Stone Age and Mastodon all wound up as critics' darlings by not doing the predictable, expected thing for a metal band at the time. Love/Hate don't really sound like any of the big names of the day, although they would seem to have many of the same ingredients, after experimenting with different styles in their earliest days (starting as an electronic dance band and toying with goth). Wasted In America is wildly inventive, despite Jizzy Pearl's claim that they were getting rich and lazy after the relative success of the first album. Seems like mor eof this album is set in a major key than the first, which might seem to be at odds with the hardcore sleaze of some of the lyrics.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: April 21, 2015 at 14:15
And sleazy they are, singing about smoking dope, getting drunk, fucking a chick in a garbage-filled alley, and hanging from somebody's tenth-floor balcony. Even the acoustic-strummed plea for mutual tolerance is put in street-level terms: "DOn't fuck with me, and I won't fuck with you." And then, you get the unabashed, pure sweetness of "Miss America," the band revisiting the theme of the troubled-but-precious young girl from "(She's An) Angel." Really the only song I don't care for is "Don't Be Afraid," but my favorites are the glorious title track, the aforementioned "Miss America," the sleazoid delights of "Spit," "Cream" "Tranquilizer," and "Time's Up."

From: hair metal again Date: June 19, 2017 at 8:33
a clear masterpiece once again for LOVE HATE that manage to combine their sleaze attitude with the success and everything else that a commercial success means!the production &the sound is excellent and as professional as it gets and the musicianship isd truly outstanding!there are no fillers and i really cant think some other band sounds similar to these guys back in the day!LOVE HATE are one of my alltime fav bands and neers of the hard rock genre that put their mark on the 90 s scene
